Costume Information

Since there is going to be an awesome Full Metal Panic group (Numta3 and co) at Kita and being the dirty-attention-whore that I am :D I've decided to try this.

It's not really complete (the body suit) but I guess it will have to do for Kita.
Time permitted I might complete it and take it to Expo someday.

Tactical Vest progress (Posted 29th March 2012)

It looks a bit shit but hopefully the finished product should look better

cooling fan (Posted 23rd March 2012)

built it using a PC fan, cables, a toggle switch and battery pack. It should keep the head cool. I plan to make it detachable so I can use it in other costumes

foaming (Posted 14th March 2012)

Using lots of upholstery foam to get the right shape. Top of the head still needs some work done

Head progress (Posted 10th March 2012)

1st stage of foaming almost complete. I was also able to build-in a head-brace to keep it stable when I wear it.

tactical vest design (Posted 10th March 2012)

I plan to use a Hi-Vis safety waistcost as the base, then sew on the fabric from there. This will be my first attempt at using a sewing machine - good luck to me

wire frame (Posted 17th February 2012)

so much to do, so little time..
